Finally got tomato plants in ground today(update)

Postby dakcub » Tue Mar 31, 2009 6:07 pm

Sunny here in So Cal....got the dirt prepared and conditioned....went and got two plants.....I planted Celebrity (VFN) this year...I have a broken sprinkler in the back yard so I use a 4 ft circle and a PVC watering system....set it and forget it..I don't give them any attention except miracle grow once a month....I let the bugs go crazy and eat and share what is left. My neighbors get so mad......because mine do better than theirs....but they get happy when I stop by to share.

I started some tomato plants the end of Jan. Will be able to put them in the ground in mid May. Maybe have some red ones by Memorial Day. These early ones are a treat, but the best come in July here in Mid-Michigan.
